Chrisohoos Estate, Naoussa - Xinomavro
The Wine Route of Naoussa winds through the Imathia area and the eastern slopes of Mount Vermio, where the Naoussa vineyards produce the famed PDO Naoussa and PGI Imathia red wines. The relationship between Xinomavro grapes and Naoussa is one of the most enduring with regard to Greek red wines.
Chrisoxoou Xinomavro is released on the market when it is at least five years of age, having spent a significant proportion of that time in oak and in bottle. This wine tend to rise to prominence with aging.
Bright red in colour, with firm tannins, tight structure, bright acidity and a personality oozing pure elegance. The essence of the Xinomavro character can be found in the complex, distinct aromas of red fruits, flowers, tomatoes, olives, dried prunes, tobacco and nuts, while wood-aging becomes evident in the subtle hints of spices.
